Neighborhood: Admiralty
Description: Previously locate at the Fenwick Pier, Giando has found a new berth in 9 Star Street, in Wanchai. Located in a more accessible area, this contemporary Italian restaurant offers authentic Italian food where the ingredients are flown in directly from Italy. This gave birth to the opening of Mercato by Giando located in the ground floor of its previous location. Reservations highly recommended

Had dinner with my Belgian business partner and my French friend -- all well-traveled. We were all so excited to try this up and coming italian restaurant that boasts fresh italian ingredients. We ordered the pizza con rucola e parmigiano and the mushroom risotto to share, and they were fantabulous!! We all love to eat and we much enjoyed a great view of the harbour (they have a floor to ceiling windows, so no need to fight for a view), most specially the food that giando truly has the right to boast for!
Very nice & attentive service with not much intrusion which we appreciate a lot.

Would highly recommend this restaurant and looking forward to trying out their brunch menu on the weekends!

Tip: There's an undergoing construction of a promenade just in front, so while it will be a great panoramic view in a year or two, best to be seated on the upper area at the back to fully enjoy the harbour view, if that's what you are after ;)

Sure, Gianni does stick wi his concept, preparing top quality ingredients to perfection. And of course his team executes this very well. I felt that first and foremost this was very honest food, not overdone, not overpriced or overrated.

Loved the deco and the views are not too bad either. Location is uncommon, but easy to access and if you drive yourself they have valet parking.

Service was good and knowledgable. Fast, efficient and not pushy for the higher priced item or wine. Finally if you want to stock up on top quality produce, you can do so here as well.

Been to many of the good Italians in HK and there are lots that are terrific but after last night Giando is right up there. Five of us had fabulous authentic Italian food. We had a variety of dishes and each was perfect. Those to make special mention of would be the parma ham (and melon) - a large portion of the best quality ham, the creamy mozzarella with eggplant and sun dried tomatoes and the pasta with ragout. For main courses we loved the veal scaloppine - tender meat with a delicious sauce and the baked cod which was simple and perfectly cooked. The whole sea bass was another classic dish that got great comments from our group.
Don't love the location (though there are some decent harbour views) but the decor is stylish and the ambiance was comfortable and warm.
A very affordable, predominantly Italian wine list and attentive, professional service added to a top quality evening.
Price wise comparable to most quality Italians in town at around $850 a head including 2 bottles of wine.
There is so much more on the menu to go for so we will be back and soon. If you like quality Italian food I strongly recommend you give this a try.
